Show me your hands and I tell you...


We all know; Models are always busy-busy, always between castings, shows, shoots, trains or flights... How do they do to always be smaAashingly impeccaAable and even more than that?
Well, they have their secrets and sometimes, sometimes only, they share a tip...

Here is one for a manucure on the go; to soothen and push your cuticles, nothing beats the Cuticle Softener Pen from Vitry. It is like a big marker and even a real novice could use it!
And guys, nice hands is a not a 'women only' beauty tip... It smells nice, but not too girly nice. So no excuses!

Dominique Models go to Sao Paulo! Tudo bom!

Long time no post. But it is the time it took me, your web divaAa to go all the way to Brazil to meet Ildiko from the booking. Of course we had a couple of caipirinhias to recover from the looooong trip>>> So now we have to recover from drinking too many of them! Uh just kidding!

We are very very busy visiting agencies over here. And what we can say for now is that Brazilians are very beautiful and very sweet. We'll keep you posted with short videos so we can share a bit of our trip with you guys. As we'll drink a couple caipirinhias more to your health of course! Cheers

For your puffy eyes only...

Eye care products are quite expensive, but nothing can beat that folk remedy for puffy eyes: infuse two teabags in boiled water for 10-20 seconds, let them cool down. When they are lukewarm, put them on your eyes for 10 minutes. It is the number one model tip for your eyes...
Okay, okay, it's no big news?... So, we'll give you tip number 2: Before going to bed , simply dab gently a tiny bit of haemorrhoid relief ointment under your eyes. Yes HEMORRHOID (PILES) OINTMENT and see the miracle for yourself on the next morning in your bathroom's mirror ; tensed under eye skin, reduced dark circles... Do not abuse of tip#2, it is for emergency cases only!
That brings us to tip number 3: As mama used to say, life IS wonderful, don't cry before going to bed.
